I am looking for a delightful children's book from my childhood circa
1958 about british children in the south pacific - I recall they were
at sea at times

How about "South Sea Holiday" (1956)?

"Fiction... Dr. Johnson is visiting some of his patients on the far
islands of the Cook group in the Pacific Ocean. He is taking two of
his children, Michael and Mandy with him and this book is about that

Does that sound like your book?

If not, can you recall any additional details that might narrow this down?
